Good afternoon

We were pleased to welcome so many guests to Rushden Academy this week. We had our annual Careers Fair on Thursday and our pupils met with a significant number of businesses both local and national, some were offering apprenticeships and were happy to come back and work with some of our pupils in preparing them with the soft skills required to secure a job or course later in life. We will take them up on this kind offer! There were university and college representatives at the event too offering a huge range of courses. It was good to see the Navy, Royal Marines, RAF and Army present. In addition the civil service was also represented as well. Pupils discussed their ideas and aspirations and many took away booklets to carefully look through. If you have something to offer or even a contact who could help our community then we really want to know. Could you please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
